Ume blossom season has started in Fukushima Pref. in March. As the 1st of ume series in this blog, I visited Hanamiyama Park in Fukushima City today. Hanamiyama, often referred to as a “paradise on earth”, usually shows its magnificent beauty during April, when most of the flowering trees such as a variety of cherry trees, flowering peach, magnolia, forsythia, and others bloom altogether. But during March, ume blossoms bloom before that as shown above. The photo shows white ume blossoms with the background of snow-capped Ide Mountains far away. Ume blossoms are a kind of quiet and plain compared to cherry, but they surely tell us that the spring has come.

Another photo is shown above in which central part of Fukushima City with Mount Shinobu on the right is overlooked from a slope of Mount Hanamiyama.

Pink ume blossoms can also be seen along the walking trail as shown above.

Map and flower description boards which stand in the park are shown above. Local flowering tree farmers kept planting their trees on the mountain slope for a long period of time and this created a large flower blooming attraction in the season. The farmers open their land to visitors. The site is 14-minute local bus ride from JR Fukushima Sta. (Shuttle bus service is available during April.)

The exact route and locations are shown in the map below. The map can be scaled up and down with a click and scroll.
